I try to visit Ilona every year at her summer place in Provincetown. This time I was lucky to spend a whole week soaking in all of her wonderful wisdom and positivity. Ilona has been painting and drawing everyday and will be having a show of her portraits of famous Provincetown artist at the museum this summer. If you happen to be near Provincetown this summer stop by The Karilon gallery at 447 Commercial Street to see some of Ilona’s work!
I met Connie at a recent screening of Advanced Style at the Newbridge on the Charles campus of Hebrew Senior Life. Debra Rapoport and I gave a talk at Newbridge over two years and I was thrilled to be invited back again to speak about the film at this wonderful senior living community
